difference in the president obama who took the oath four years ago and the one that will take the oath tomorrow? >> there's atmospheric differences. we had an economy collapsing all around us and he was a first term president and still putting together his team and agenda and cabinet and still the economy is too weak but recovering and the question is right now building on that as opposed to simply trying to stem the bleeding. there's a big difference and i think the experience of the office, as you know, you know, that helps a lot and so i think he does have even more sure-footedness in his approach. >> it can become a bit of a burden. historians write about the second term curse and i know you and your team spent a lot of time studying how to avoid that. what's the key? >> well, i think, listen, if you look at president clinton's second term, he made significant progress on balanced budgets and ronald reagan accomplished tax reforms. >> even if they're dealing with other problems. >> and we have been fortunate to be scandal-free and we want to continue that, but if you look, it's not
in the foirs two years of the obama administration. the democrats have the white house, the senate and congress, and they did nothing. i blame both of them, and i went during the presidential campaign, i pointed out that mitt romney had champions an assault weapon ban in massachusetts when he was governor, signed the bill, got it passed and signed it. president obama, when he was running four years ago, he championed an assault weapons ban, said he would try to get it in if he got elected, and neither did anything. i crit kzed both of them. this is not a partisan thing. somehow or another, connecticut children, you know, suburban, nice, normal ro an rockwell kin image in your mind. somehow or other, that has touched the american public's heart. >> mr. mayor, thank you. >> thank you for having me. >> still ahead, the interview people have been waiting for for decades. what did lange armstrong say to oprah winfrey, and will he apologize to the millions of people whose lives he tore apart. we'll ask what they'll be looking for. ♪ [ male announcer ] end your long week... with a weekend getaway. s

in that office will set aside that time. host: if you were to give advice to president obama for the next four years, what would you tell him? guest: i would not try to give him advice. at the risk of being presumptuous, i would say that the great danger for any second term president, whether you say playing to a legacy or hubris -- on the one hand, you want him to be bold. you want to make history. but you have to calibrate that in some ways against what is realistically achieve achievable. it is a tough time for anyone. if he were a republican, i would say the same thing. it is a difficult time for a president raised on stories of the bully pulpit and the ability of a president to set a national agenda. because of the internet, the technology, conflicting conversations that are going on -- people are not listening to the pulpit, or they are competing with it. host: richard norton smith, thank you for being with us.

are -- we have a divided government now. it has been a difficult four years but i think president obama is a natural. i think he will make that a big theme of his second term. i think you will hear some of that tomorrow. host: this is from this morning's "the washington post" who writes a new term, a new obama. he points out and draws an aanalogy to f.d.r. and eisenhower. guest: the roosevelt second inaugural address is interesting to read. it really is at peace with the first inaugural address. this is a president saying i came in with a huge crisis, we're on the right path, we're going to keep going. he has a phrase in there, have we found our happy val valley? i -- valley. i don't read it as being an aggressive speech. he was speaking to the whole country but he wasn't in campaign mode. roosevelt was very good in that way and eisenhower never sounded like he was in campaign mode. guest: i think that speech is recognized as one of the better second inaugurals. i think it does echo some of the themes of president obama. one of the lines in that speech, i see a nation ill clothed -- 1/3
here to announce the closure of guantanamo. four years ago when president obama can into office and issued the executive order that we all remember promising to close guantanamo, that was absolutely the right thing to do. since then, the prisoners at guantanamo have sadly been filled by the obama administration and the united states congress and the courts and the majority of the mainstream media and by the american people. that is sadly the truth. when you look at what that means -- what is it mean for the people in guantanamo? the most important fact that we need to be aware of on this day is that have of the prisoners in guantanamo have been cleared for release from that prison by a very sober and responsible group of government officials and lawyers and all the government departments and intelligence agencies in a report that was issued three years ago. as moe put it, these are not people who needed to be held because they pose a security risk or because they have ongoing intelligence on the united states and yet they have not been released. united states went to a very high
, you know, boehner doesn't want to give obama a free lunch on the debt ceiling. they did that a year ago, they still haven't passed the se yestercuts. what i'm saying, why not at least launch a compromise? obama has compromised before in the past. heck, he's even voted against the debt ceiling in the past. >> well, we clearly need a compromise. we need to reduce spending, we need to impose tough statutory budget controls. need a real credit card, that's constitutional limit. we're the only country on earth that has a debt ceiling limit. so let's get real and try to do something that's more -- that's more appropriate and more effective than we have had in the past. ultimately we need to build a bridge to a grand bargain later this year which includes social insurance reforms and comprehensive tax reform. that will make it simpler, fairer, more competitive and generate more revenues. >> you know, on that taxes, i am just beside myself with the desire to have business tax cuts. large and small business tax cuts. i think we should have done this four years ago. >> i definitely think that
weapon's ban. >> in the first four years of his administration president obama did more to expand handgun ownership. these are normal rational things and you have nothing to fear. >> yes, but he's black. >> stephanie: all right. ollie north on nra news radio. >> it is now going to be done by executive action. >> shocking! >> that's contrary to my understanding of what the constitution is all about. and i think it's contrary and foreign to most of us. when he raise that right hand and take that oath we don't pledge to a political party, to an individual, unlike many other countries around the world. what we have done is we have now decided that one man can decide what is or isn't legal under certain circumstances. >> yeah. >> i think that civil libertarians, and by the way the national rifle association is one of the greatest protectors of civil liberties that has ever existed on the planet earth. >> of course if you have been shot in the face your civil liberties -- >> stephanie: yeah. >> i apologize i called him a convicted felon oliver north -- >> stephanie: was
on this friday morning as we prepare for president obama's second inauguration. a number of leading magazines focusing on what is next. the next four years is which i say chon science monitor two for the president. tomorrow, saturday is being called a national day of service. the white house ceremony will take place on sunday at noon eastern as the president is sworn in from the blue room of the white house. the president ceremony will take place monday followed by a congressional luncheon and a parade. one question raced by on outgoing president 52 years ago this woke was the role in government in solving america's problems. we'll share with you some of the comments of dwight eisenhower in his farewell address. what is the role in government in solving america's problems. you can join the conversation by giving us a call. you can send us an e-mail at journal at let's begin with the act two second terms for u.s. presidents have been problematic but not cursed. what history will says about how president obama will do. will obama blow another mandate. meanwhile from the hill newspape
after the top of the hour. the election of barak obama guarantees four more years of government growth, many say. that's mostly due to the landmark health care legislation, the affordable care act. as the bureaucracy gets bigger, your coverage could actually get smaller? here to help us understand the new law, betsy mccoy, author of the book" beating observe observe." you've been an advocate of explaining what observe -- obamacare is all about. >> the book is actually a no spin, easy to understand guide for people who know nothing about health insurance or health care except what they've experienced themselves. but there are big changes ahead for everybody. for example, most americans get their health insurance at work, through their own employer or their spouse's employer. but they may be losing that coverage. >> gretchen: why? >> because the law requires, being in 2014, that employers with 50 or more full-time workers, provide coverage. not just any coverage. the government mandated one size fits all plan, which will cost about twice as much as what many employers currently offer. so
four years, the term of the administration of president obama? >> see, this is the real reason why i called on jose miguel because he just articulated a question that i couldn't quite articulate but was precisely -- >> let me answer as bluntly and quickly as possible, and i'll invite my panelists to join in. first of all, the oas is a victim, and jose -- [inaudible] sosa is the beneficiary of the oas' growing irrelevance. the oas has declined in stature and importance, and jose miguel has been less open to observation and criticism because it's becoming less and less relevant. i think it's difficult. i honestly don't know how you turn that corner to make the oas much more -- i do think giving much more -- to take the case of the american human rights commission which is something that we're working on as america's quarterly, i think that could be a test case for demonstrating, you know, the only thing that really works in the oas and could sort of, hope any, reinject -- and also an opportunity for the obama administration to quietly, behind the scenes, make common cause with countrie

sort of contradicted the narrative that president obama and joed biden were taking during the the election, crazy uncle joe. >> today after ten years of war we face a hell after lot of threats out in this world. number one, we're continuing to fight terrorism. i mean, yes, we've, you know, we've gone after al-qaeda. yes, we've decimated their leadership. but al-qaeda is still there. they're still a threat. they're a threat in yemen, a threat in somalia, they're a threat as we speak in mali. >> sean: i've got to give him some credit he actually used the term "the war on terrorism" and fighting against the president's desire, the democratic party's desire to gut our defense. >> i think that secretary panetta has been a voice of reason here. he talks about the fact that the sequestration would be devastating if the cuts were allowed to go through. he deals with it day in and day out and he understands that the american people need to realize we still face a threat. i think the president, you know, i would really like to see a president, frankly, as dedicated to disarming al-q
the country that has given him so much. this has been his goal since he was a kid. when president obama stopped the deportation of eligible youth last year, he opened the door of opportunity for young people and he pointed the way forward by establishing important principles to guide immigration reform. immigrants must take personal responsibility for their actions. if they do this, we must provide a meaningful path forward to become members of american society. we have every right to protect our borders but we must balance this with the need to encourage the aspiration of america's immigrants. these are the principles of the american people threw their support behind in november. these are the principles that guide immigration reform in the coming months. with these principles in mind, we need reform builds upon the following policy pillars. a pathway to legal permanent residents in three and citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants must be at the core of reform. number two is legalization should be earned. it should be a process and not a punishment proof of english-lang
reasons. but it's interesting to note in the last 90 years, out of the 11 times that the budget from the president has been late, four of those 11 have been under the obama administration. we're also informed that there is a chance once again, like there was a year and a half ago, that our credit rating of the u.s. could be lowered again. by another credit rating agency. some have tried to paint it as a different story, different picture, but for those of us who recall what happened, s&p made it clear that they didn't believe that the united states was serious about dealing with this dramatic spending problem, overspending problem. where we were spending $1.5 billion, $1.6 trillion, over $1 trillion more than the $2-plus trillion that we had coming in. and that if we didn't at least reduce the massive overspending annually by at least $400,000 -- $400 billion, rather, for 10 years, a total of $4 trillion over a 10-year period, then it would make it pretty clear that we were not serious about dealing with our debt. i know the obama administration went on the warpath after s&p, after t

on a regular basis. during our annual meeting this past june in orlando, vice president biden pledged the obama administration would make sure that the future infrastructure investments are more targeted to local areas. in november, last year, the vice president hosted our leadership in the white house, to discuss the fiscal cliff and the concerns of mayors regard boast inrestor programs programs progt financing. whenever there's major issue that demands attention, again and again and again, vice president joe biden has shown the leadership and courage needed to help move our nation in the right direction. that is why i was certainly very heartened when president obama asked vice president biden to lead a specific task force to develop responses to the tragedy at not only sandy hook elementary school, but the daily tragedies we see all across america. the nation's mayors and vice president biden have stood together for many, many years in support of public safety. after all, it was then-senator joe biden who championed the crime bill, which established the cops program, and included the ban on
, every single day across our country. every day of the year, an average of 33 americans are murdered with guns. here is another way to think about what that means. one week from today, president obama will take the oath of office for his second term. unless we take action, during those four years, some 48,000 americans will be killed with guns. nearly twice as many people as were killed in combat during the entire vietnam war. when i have talked with the vice president, i have made it very clear that our bipartisan coalition of mayors is supporting seven measures. three that need legislation and for that require only executive action. we are hopeful the president and vice president will support all seven. i just wanted to touch on each of them briefly. first, most urgently, we need the president and congress together to require background checks for all gun sales, including private sales at gun shows and online. private sales now account for more than 40% of all gun sales nationally. which means that in 2012 alone, there were more than 6 million gun sales that happened with no projec
the obama administration there's actually been great leaps forward in terms of transactional use of the internet. people file their taxes online. this goes off year after year with relatively to problems. you know -- no problems. you know, this has actually been, those two things have been good advantages. i think the major failing over the last 20 years, and it really goes even back beyond that, is that because we were in a sort of anti-government mode for much of that time and we had at least until the last election a very ascendant conservative feeling in the country, we started to do government not through government. and i think what my two colleagues here are reflecting is that we began to implement policy through regulation and through the tax system. as opposed to taking on policy head on. so your example, phil, about the congo, okay? look, clearly that place is a mess. clearly -- >> uh-huh. no argument. [laughter] >> every good intention people in the congress wanted to make a stance. but doing it that way? as opposed through a more direct, straight-on, diplomatic endeav
in columbia, missouri, is a gun owner. -- scott. what do you think about president obama taking executive action? caller: i support it. i've been a gun owner since 1957, a hunter, a sporting rights person i have 19 guns and all. i owend a gun shop 10 years -- i owned a gun shop 10 years. i think that wayne lapierre is a case. i had my gun shop under president clinton and every other day are right-wing person would come in the store and talk about their rights being taken away. no democratic president has ever talked about taking away our guns at any time. they want to get rid of these black guns. i am totally for that. i told my wife when i walk out the door with two 30-round magazines fitted together, and knocked me out and call the police. host: you owned a store 10 years. describe what it was like to have people come in there? how did you form the opinion you have, given that you owned a gun store? caller: it was a daily thing. i live in a small enough down here than i knew a lot of the people or knew of the people. almost every day i would have these right-wingers coming in and they w
.c., president obama is said to be forging ahead on a wide ranging plan to overhaul the immigration plan this year. this includes a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants already in the country. immigrants would have to pay fines and back taxes. it would require businesses to veri verify employees in the country legally. the president will lay out his annual state of the u.n. address set for february 12th. >> let's take a look at the markets this morning. at this point, the futures outlook is mixed. dow and s&p 500 futures are both indicated higher. fass dak futures are indicated slightly down, down by just over 7 points and i wonder if part of that is because of what is happening with apple. that sdun does the make up a big part of the post shares percentage. if you take a look at europe this morning, you'll see that it was at this point the averages there above fair value are trading higher in the early trade there. in france, cac is up by .4%. germany the dax is up by .6%. the ftse is lightly higher bay few points in london. in asia overnight, you'll see that the hang seng endeded
're telling me that he doesn't intend to take anybody's firearms? when in four years you're going to see the fall of the obama nation. and that's what it is. an obama nation. i've never seen a more arrogant president than the one we have now. host: and we will take this. did you want to respond? guest: briefly, i mean, i think that it's important to know that, first of all, president has been clear about what he wants to do and it does not involve confiscation. it involves the sensible forms that he outlined yesterday. but also we have a supreme court in this country and the supreme court held that there is a second amendment right of law-abiding citizens to have a gun in the open for self-defense and that whatever your fears are about what congress could do, what any president, this or any other president could do, that second amendment governs and so that should put your fears at rest. host: this is a magazine that came up with a series of recent ads for guns and her was one for a bush master. consider your man card reissued. in the brady center's viewpoint, should there be restriction
candlemaking this past june in orlando, vice president biden pledged the obama administration would make sure that future infrastructure investments are more targeted to local areas. in november of last year, the vice president hosted our leadership in the white house to discuss the fiscal cliff and concerns of mayors regarding both investment programs in tax-exempt financing. whenever there's a major issue that demands attention, again and again and again, vice president joe biden has shown the leadership and courage needed to help move our nation in the right direction. that is why it is certainly very hard when president obama asked vice president biden to the special task force to develop responses to the tragedy that not only sandy hook elementary school, the daily tragedies all across america. the nation's mayors and vice president biden have stood together for many, many years in support of public safety. after all, who has been senator joe biden who champions the crime bill, which established the cops program and included the ban on assault weapons and large capacity magazines as cong
and registered on public roles. for all the controversy over president obama's health care mandate, they have got so much attention in june of last year, the founding fathers in 1792 pass a law requiring every free citizen, free mail between the ages of 18 and 45 to outfit themselves with a rifle. a military style musket for -- capable of serving in the militias. the founding fathers did not view the second amendment as a basis for insurrection. rather, they viewed it as part of a well-regulated militia. >> thank you. >> i was wondering if you could talk a little bit about whether in the publication you might be able to stress i or break out likely voters. just thinking about polls that people are paying attention. also 2 likely voters and also by state or region of the country. >> those are good questions. survey firms have algorithms that allow them to break out motors. for this purpose we care about the views of all americans and so we wanted to report the rates of support among americans, broadly speaking. we did not ask that likely voter battery to subset the data. there are other important
of the loss of political capital and the years of the bush administration some people in the administration tried to politicize the human rights questions and i think that the mantra became wendi obama administration came in we cannot publicize them or get in the middle of it but i think they had gone too far and it's not just in venezuela. it's across the board, and i don't think that, you know, they really found that middle ground yet. there is a crying need for people in the region's. let's take the case of venezuela who are not getting represented somewhere. estimate on that happy and optimistic note, i know there are many additional questions and we simply don't have time to get to you so i apologize for that, but i think the conversation here has been fantastic. it's been broad, diverse, which covered a lot of territory. i know we didn't answer all questions to the fact of the matter is that good because the phrase you always want to leave them wanting more so presumably we've done that. ladies and gentlemen will you join me in my thinking our panelists.
